ABOUT THE EQUITY CHALLENGE

United Way of Long Island wants to be a healing voice for Long Island. We recognize there is significant need for us as individuals and
organizations to gain a better understanding of how inequity and racism impact so many of our neighbors and to learn what we can do to dismantle all forms
of oppression. United Way's Equity Challenge is designed to be a powerful opportunity for shared learning, action, and growth.

The self-guided learning journey examines the history and impact of racism, and how it has shaped people’s lives.
The experience will deepen understanding and help launch what we hope will be a lifelong commitment to improving equity and inclusion.
